Isaiah Thomas is not happy with his position in Sports Illustrated's top 100

Published Add your comment

Sports Illustrated were never going to please everybody when they released their list of the top 100 NBA players heading into the new season.

DeMar DeRozan was the first to complain after he landed in 46th, and point guard Isaiah Thomas has questioned the publication after he came one place higher.

The Boston Celtics man was a first-time All-Star this season but still finished below a number of player's whose position on the list was questionable: Steven Adams, Dwyane Wade, Andre Iguodala and Rudy Gobert, just to name a few.

He can't be classed as a franchise star, but the diminutive guard really has established himself as a premium player in the league as he guided the Celtics back to the playoffs from the one spot last season.

Standing at just 6'3, Thomas has been underrated throughout his whole basketball life and that has not changed despite his increase in popularity and production in Beantown.

Last year, when he was ranked as low as 88, the now 27-year-old compared the list to 'political' rankings that came out during his time in high school.

Having averaged 22.2 points on 42.8 shooting from the field, and 6.2 assists, his position in the top 100 does seem considerably low.
